Dr. Cornelius and The Call to Virtuous Learning: Prince Caspian and The Abolition of Man

C.S. Lewis provides a vivid account of the crucial nature of virtuous learning and its impact on leadership, vocation, and human existence in his delightful children’s novel, Prince Caspian. The novel is, at the same time, a wonderful illustration of the central philosophical analysis of Lewis’ The Abolition of Man. The education of young Prince Caspian by Dr. Cornelius is an example of the kind of education in virtue that lies at the heart of the prescient analysis of contemporary culture in The Abolition of Man. In both works, Lewis is demonstrating the kind of education that unites (1) fact and value, (2) truth and meaning, and (3) reason and imagination – principles core to our mission as home educators.
